Phase 2: Investigate alternatives

After a project is selected to be in the Six-Year Highway Improvement Program, WisDOT continues to listen to citizens' concerns through public information meetings.

Sometimes it is possible for a WisDOT representative to personally visit homes, businesses or farms prior to or during a construction project. A visit from WisDOT personnel offers citizens the chance to gain information, air concerns, discuss issues, or ask for assistance.

WisDOT works with citizens to identify project alternatives. Each alternative is analyzed and assessed based on cost and its impact on:

  • People
  • Businesses
  • Farmlands and wetlands
  • Endangered species
  • Historic structures and artifacts
  • Landfills

Public meetings are held to present the recommended improvements with more specific detail about impacts. Small changes can be applied to the plan at this point to help address public concerns and fine-tune the design.
